This excellent B&B is up quite a steep hill, as the name shows, but don't let this put you off! The building is in attractive surroundings and a number of rooms have long distance views. The B&B is on Beast Banks, and in the Museum of Lakeland Life, the old Post Office from Beast Banks is the one used in...

Spent one night here after visiting relatives nearby. The B&B is comfortable, spotlessly clean, the owners friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. Free WiFi in every room and free on-street parking using permit provided are real bonuses. Highly recommended.

Our stay was wonderful, Wendy and Richard made us VERY welcome, the place is spotless, lovely rooms and all en suite. Comfy bed and a fabulous breakfast with a good menu choice. Short walk into the historic town of Kendal and very central to visit the hills and lakes of the area.

Stayed for the one night whilst on business in the town. Easy walk into the centre. Free on-street parking using permit provided. Much more pleasant stay than the over-priced hotels in the town. Reasonably priced and an immaculate house. Good wifi. Great breakfast. Will definitely use again. Thanks Richard, Ian

We selected Kendal as the ideal base for a brief tour of the Lake District, which proved a good choice. Past Trip Advisor reviews recommend Hillside Bed and Breakfast and all the praise is fully justified. Owners Richard and Susan were so helpful and friendly, making our stay a real homely pleasure.

Spent 4 nights at Hillside and if I visit the Lake District again I will definitely return. Spotlessly clean, lovely room, plentiful breakfast with lots of choice. Richard was really helpful with information on places to visit, travel suggestions and so on. I was comfortable and happy staying there.

My wife and I spent three nights at Hillside and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The room and bathroom were spacious and clean. Richard was amazingly helpful about giving us tips about getting around town and the region. The breakfasts were very good, too: variety, plentiful, and tasty. There also was a cooling fan in the room. I would recommend Hillside...

Lovely very comfortable clean room, very central location, very pleasant and accomodating hosts and a fabulous breakfast. Richard allowed to retain the on street parking permit until late afternoon after we had checked out which was a very nice gesture as it saved us moving the car and having to pay for parking.
